Our first full day with our Ronnie, Roids, DD & TF.  I wake at around 8am with a screaming bladder and a peak out of the bog window tells me it’s dry and sunny.  I get dressed and take the dogs out.  Not to the site dog walk this morning but to the fields that sit high above Whitesands Beach near Sennen,just half a mile from our site.

Preserve your 12v battery life

Let me know how you get on if you buy some of these.
